Deli salads sold in King Soopers and City Market stores in several mountain states have been recalled over fears of listeria contamination.
Denver-based King Soopers, a division of The Kroger Co., announced Oct. 23 it had recalled deli broccoli salads and coleslaw sold in King Soopers and City Market stores in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Wyoming.
The recalled salads were purchased Oct. 1-21 and include Deli Broccoli Almond Salad, Asian Pasta Salad, Deli Colorado Coleslaw and Deli California Broccoli Salad.
King Soopers issued the recall after being notified on Oct. 20 by the products’ manufacturer, Journey Cuisine, that the product contained an ingredient from Salinas, California-based vegetable shipper Mann Packing, which announced a recall after a positive result for listeria was found during random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. That recall included Mann Packing’s Nourish Bowl products, which are sold in some grocery delis.
As of Oct. 23, no illnesses connected to the King Soopers recall had been reported.
